Museum to reopen on Monday 17 July 2017!

The Museum has been closed for several months while a brand new Mary Anning Wing has been built, but is set to reopen on 17 July 2017 bigger and better than ever. Click here to learn more about the Mary Anning Wing Extension. Read the press release here.

On reopening there will be a new interactive fossil gallery, a new Fine Foundation Learning Centre for schools and families, improved visitor facilities including a lift, a new gift shop and magnificent sea views out over Lyme Bay.

Please take a look at our calendar of events to mark the reopening >

In the meantime there is still lots going on. We’re still running fossil walks, town walks, Mary Anning walks plus many other events around town.

And we’re still delivering our very popular outdoor activities for schools. With the sea as a backdrop and the beach for a classroom, we offer inspirational fossil walks and rockpooling sessions for your school. Click here to find out more.
